Reading Task Autumn 1



I can show my understanding of texts by summarising the main ideas over a paragraph or a number of paragraphs, finding key details and quotations as evidence to support my views.


Choose a book that you have read recently and summarise the story. It can be as long or as short as you like, however you should consider what would be an appropriate amount of information - you can't give a good summary of a 500 page book in ten words or less! Think about what is important in the story and try to use some evidence from the text in your writing.
